My name is Angelika Albaladejo and I’m an independent multimedia journalist currently based in Medellín, Colombia.

My research, reporting, writing, photography and audiovisual projects cover issues of security, human and women’s rights, sexual and gender-based violence and social protest in the Americas.

I have published reported articles and photojournalism with Fusion, TruthOut and The Huffington Post. I have also published reports, blogs and academic journal articles with The World Policy JournalSecurity Assistance Monitor Blog, and Just Americas: A Blog by LAWG, among other outlets.

I have been interviewed and featured as a female foreign policy expert by Foreign Policy Interrupted and Women in Foreign Policy.

Between April 2015 and August 2016, I worked as a Program Associate with the Latin America Working Group (LAWG) where I engaged in research, writing, advocacy and communications work for the organization’s campaigns on Colombia, Cuba, and the northern triangle countries of Central America: Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.

Previous to working at LAWG, I was the Latin America Rights and Security Fellow at the Center for International Policy (CIP) in the fall of 2014 and the co-host and co-producer of Periphery, an independent podcast on security and rights in the Americas, in the spring of 2015.

I completed my bachelor’s degree in Global Affairs at George Mason University with minors in Communications and Conflict Analysis & Resolution in 2012. I completed my master’s degree in Latin American Studies from Vanderbilt University in 2014.

I am a first-generation U.S.-born child of Cuban and Puerto Rican parents. I am fluent in English and Spanish and have working proficiency in Portuguese.
